Flakk um Suður Ameríku ✈️
Ferðalagið heim heppnaðist vel. Þó eg hafi fengið yfir mig kaffi i fyrsta fluginu, villst 2x a flugvellinum i Madrid og Lennt i að sitja hja skrýtnu fólki i öllum 3 flugunum. Skrýtnast var þó þegar eg var að fara að tjekka töskuna mína i síðasta flugið, fra brussel til Stokkhólms, sagði konan strax við mig “are you going to Iceland” og eg varð ringluð i smá...?!?! “No, Sweden”! Henni fannst samt skemmtilegast að eg skyldi svo vera i raun íslensk, enda hafði konan komið 5 sinnum til Islands og alveg elskaði það, haha! Skrýtið að þetta ferðalag se komið a enda!! Þetta var samt svo ótrúlega gaman, en a sama tíma oft erfitt þegar eg svaf litið, þurfti að ferðast langt, átti erfitt með að ná áttum a nýjum stöðum eða fann fyrir óöryggi þar sem eg var. En oftast var skemmtilegt, kynntist mikið af frábæru fólki, heimsótti og eyddi tíma með vinum sem er hafði ekki séð lengi og sá ótrúlega mikið að fallegri náttúru og glæsilegum borgum. 105 dagar. Vá. Aldeilis ógleymanlegt ferðalag út i gegn 😁😍

Welcome home. Mabuhay! We're back in our home land. It's a strange experience over and over again to be back in a familiar place when you just came back from traveling from another country. In a span of 9 days, we've been to many different places, met a lot of diverse people and experienced a lot of new things. These are the reason probably why it takes time to process your emotions after traveling. Being shot back to reality and going back to daily routine is really challenging. Physically tired from the adventures, there's a lot of sleep to catch up and the stomach had to adjust to the normal food you've grown up to. Also, there are dozens of stories you want to share but it seems that there's not much time. You feel wanting to go back or travel to somewhere else instead. Yes they call it travel bug. Being a ‘traveller’ is a mindset that gains power with every day you spend on the road. Being displaced becomes a part of your identity. Being lost is your personal enlightenment. Travel has always been an exhilarating and important part of my life. Every phenomenal memory I have on the road has infinitely more to do with the people I was surrounded by than the actual place I was in. I love the cities I had whirlwind romances in. I look back fondly on the cheap, hostels where I stayed up all night talking and laughing with old and new friends. One realization I had is that if we were half as open with people in our everyday lives as we are with each other on the road, everywhere we went would be an adventure. When we travel it's normal to get caught up in the act of constant motion. What was meant to be a soul-searching journey turns into a series of famous monuments getting crossed off list. And in the midst of it all, it becomes all too easy to forget that constant movement isn’t the point of any of it. At the end of the day we’re all human and we’re all looking for the same core things – people who understand us, challenges that grow us and places that make us feel at home. Know that there’s a time and a place to keep going. Similarly, there is and there must be a time to stay put.

Autumn Trip to South Korea
Alhamdulillah I came home safe and sound. It was a very great experience to be able to go travelling with friends. This is a reward for myself for finishing medical school, Alhamdulillah. I had been dreaming for this kind of trip since forever! This is one of my best memories of 2017. I'll look forward for my next travelling. Once you travelled it'll surely become an addiction. Let's save a fortune to travel 🗺🛩 Thank you very much my travel buddies for having me 😘😘😘

Backpacking Southeast Asia & Beyond
We got the 11:30 delivery boat from suns of beaches to Koh Touch, the village 20 minute boat ride away. The drop off point was monkey island hostel which was on the end of the beach but edge of the village. The beach was looking nice but we were getting hungry and wanted to use a bit of wifi to arrange the next few days. There were tonnes of posters and flyers around for beach parties and Richie Rich's bar crawl. Biggest in Cambodia. After food we wanted to check out the 4K beach and then we planned to return to book everything. After a few pit stops at some beach bars and swimming we got to some kayaks. $50 deposit later and we were off on our way to a smaller island. We had ourselves a road beer about half way but after that we plowed through in probably record breaking time. We circled the small island in search of a beach to dock our boat but it was to no avail and instead did some snorkelling by the rocks alongside another Chinese tour boat.

Backpacking in Neuseeland
Noch vor Sonnenaufgang machen wir uns auf den Weg nach Milford Sound um eine Kajaktour zu machen. Wir haben einen netten Guide und paddeln los. Zunächst in ruhigem Gewässer, an einem großen Wasserfall vorbei, und später in der Bucht bei Wellen bis zu einem Meter. Immer wieder gibt es Pausen in denen wir interessante Infos zu Milford bekommen wie zum Beispiel die Maori Legende zur Entstehung des Fjords. Wärend der Tour fängt es etwas an zu regnen, dies trübet den Spaß jedoch keinesfalls. Ein weiteres Highlight sind die Seelöwen in Milford, die wir zwei mal aus nächster nähe betrachten können. Nach der Kajaktour machen wir uns auf nach Te Anau. Dort schlafen wir im Te Anau Lakefront Backpackers. Für 20 Dollar ist hie viel geboten und das Areal ist schön gestaltet. Heute gibt es zum ersten mal Fleisch. Wir machen einen Eintopf mit Hackfleisch, passierten Tomaten, Kartoffeln und Gemüse. Außerdem kann ich endlich meine Nassen Sachen trocknen

Goa-Gokarna Solo Backpacking
This was my first encounter with the selfie crazed Indian crowd. Every 20meters one had to take a selfie. And the selfie sticks are so tacky and started irritating me right away. Ignore these all the way. Chapora fort faces Vagator beach and is a really good viewpoint to gaze below onto the mortals, like a God. This was a very good start to my explorations.

Solo Backpacking -The Land of the Long White Cloud
in chennai..for the first time...its quite similar to the other cities in Tamilnadu like Salem, Dindigul, Madurai etc..jus bigger i guess..major similarity being the high dividers.. practically making it difficult for ppl to cross the road where they are not supposed to...i like that The airport looks good. A pretty sight from outside..Even the approach when we enter the departure terminals is not bad a sight.. an unwelcome 4 hr wait to go before they let me in..n 8 hrs before the flight..need a shut eye but cant afford the bags to be stolen..the solo traveller😉😉

Lee & Natasha through Southeast Asia
We were better prepared today to actually leave Hanoi on the bikes. After picking up our bikes from the mechanic, we got full tanks of petrol, we ate, we packed the bags on properly. It still took us about 2 hours to get out of Hanoi because of the sheer volume of people there. It took us about 5 hours in total to arrive into Hoa Binh, the next city along on the way to Mai Chau. It was about 17:30 when we arrived and the torrential rain started. We decided to get a hotel because driving the bike is really tiring. I went out to get some food and manager of the hotel offered to drive me to the local takeaway to bring food back, so we had a BBQ mix on some rice and went to sleep. We will get up early tomorrow to drive the last few hours to Mai Chau.
